NBA Mercenary Larry Brown Could Be On The Move Again

It seems hard to believe that Larry Brown would really leave the Bobcats, considering they hired him when nobody else would after his flameout with the Knicks. But let's get real: we talkin' about Larry Brown, man. Not any coach, not any coach. We talkin' about Larry Brown. The same Larry Brown that has coached eight teams in his NBA coaching career and once switched teams in the middle of the season

So it should come as no surprise that Brown is rumored to be on the move again. This time, it's back to Philadelphia, where Eddie Jordan is a lock to be fired at the end of the season. Peter Vescey, who, it should be noted, isn't exactly a reliable NBA scribe, delivers the "news."

Coincidentally squared, Next Town Brown, I'm informed, has received approval from Bobcats owner Michael Jordan to return home, home on the range -- Philadelphia -- where his wife, school-age children and the antelopes still play, to re-take control of the 76ers from top to bottom.

I presume permission isn't activated until after the playoffs, but with Next Town, one can never be sure.

"Next Town Brown." Not bad. I wonder which of Vescey's interns came up with that one.

Sure, the source (Vescey) can't be trusted, but at the same time - doesn't this seem like a classic Larry Brown maneuver? Bring a team back to respectability, then bolt as soon as he does it to start over again with another team?I hear the Nets need a new coach too.
